Originating from Central Asia, Tulipa neustruevae has often two, but sometimes more, beautiful golden yellow flowers. Striking are the brown to olive coloured outer petals. The inner petals have a narrow band in that same colour. The inside of the flower is completely yellow, there is no sign of a different coloured center, even the anthers are completely yellow. The narrow leaves grow at the base and can be quite long. Note also the reddish edge on the leaves. The Russian botanist Aleksei Vvedensky described this specie in 1935 as T. dasystemon, the specie we now know as Tulipa Tarda. In 1949 Tulipa neustruevae was described by Eugenia Podedimova as an at lower altitudes growing specie of T. daystemon. This early blooming specie is perfect for rock gardens.
